Strike!

The first day of my hunger strike.

Yesterday at 12:42 PM I received a response to my open letter to the Chicago Dyke March Collective (CDMC). Without CDMC’s consent I will not be quoting the e-mail at length or giving a point-by-point response. However, I can in good conscience disclose the following:

  1. CDMC has not conceded my demands.
  2. CDMC has made a counter-proposal in which it has offered to do less than it offered to do when I met with two of its representatives in May (despite the fact that it has caused more harm since then).
  3. The response has all the earmarks of a letter written at the eleventh hour.
  4. It is perhaps in line with the above that throughout most of the letter CDMC refers to me in the third person.
  5. The response left me feeling objectified.
CDMC’s response fell far short of what I was expecting, and I did not have great expectations to begin with. In reply I sent CDMC an e-mail that was brief (at least when compared to my original open letter) to inform the collective that I will be proceeding with my hunger strike.
